  1. The Use of Hydrogen for Defect Reduction in Large Format Infrared Detector Materials

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    Active defects negatively impact the performance of IRFPAs by increasing noise at various levels up to, and including, catastrophic degradation. Evidence indicates that"killer defects"are related to the interaction of open core screw dislocations with impurities that remain after substrate preparation, prior to HgCdTe growth. This impurity diffusion creates a conducting channel that shorts the j ...

  2. High Operability HgCdTe Focal Plane Arrays on Si by Mitigation of Defects

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    For HgCdTe infrared focal plane arrays fabricated on Si substrates, a model has recently been proposed to account for the disparity between the density of failed pixels and the density of dislocations that are present in the HgCdTe junction region. The model distinguishes between active and inactive dislocations and offers a hypothesis that dislocations are active only when they intersect particul ...

  3. Defect Reduction at the Silicon (112) Wafer Surface by Amorphization and Recrystallization

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA11T002

    Silicon wafers oriented on (112) are the preferred substrates for deposition of mercury cadmium telluride layers by molecular beam epitaxy. Surface defects introduced during polishing of the wafers degrade the quality of the epitaxy and the performance of infrared detectors fabricated within these materials. We propose a process for reducing the density of the defects that are inherent in the si ...

  5. High Strength Stress Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Casting Alloys

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: N102106

    The approach selected to address the development of High Strength Stress Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Casting Alloys is to use A201 and AA2139 as the base alloy and modify/optimize the composition use thermodynamic modeling . Reducing the susceptibility to hot-tearing will be achieved through the use incorporation of grain refiners such as dispersoid forming elements to control the dispersoid/dend ...

  6. Scalable Dynamic Matrix Completion for Information Processing and Link Discovery

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: N102183

    Recent study by Candes et al. proves that that matrix completion is able to recover the missing entries from a surprising small fraction of random known entries if the matrix admits certain properties. The theoretical advance of the matrix recovery fosters a number of applications such as collaborative filtering, machine learning, and high-dimensional data process. In this project, explore Near-Op ...
